Anyone know of a good oil to use in a manual steering gear since the GM stuff is discontinued. Mine has been leaking for a while.

Thanks

Well, It's actually grease.  I just had mine rebuilt by Pro Steering and some other people on TC used them too.  I asked them and they use Valvoline Multi Purpose grease # 612.  Jerry MacNeish rebuilds them too.  If yours is leaking, I'd get it fixed.  Mine had to have the whole inside replaced as it leaked out and the inside looked like it had mud in it.  I don't know if Jerry sells seals or not.  www.prosteering.com and Jerry is www.z28camaro.com

I recently went through a '70 manual steering gear and was able to locate both seals, but the flat gasket that goes under the adjusting plate (with three bolts) was unavailable.  I did a clean prep and used permatex instead of the gasket.  I packed the bearings, worm gear and the entire case with Mystik JT-6 grease.  It took most of the 1 pound can, and so far no leaks.
